Who has news??!!

I do!! It's been a little over a week since I packed up my office and started my severance. The last week has gone by pretty quickly. My brother came to visit, we went to the beach, I had LASIK and we had a BBQ for 20 people. Now it's Tuesday!

I've had some news I wanted to share and I finally get to spread it, as of September 1st my creations will be sold at "Made By Hand" in Oxford NC! The store is on Main Street in Oxford and gets good foot traffic. There will be a variety of hand crafted items available there by several area artists. I'll be selling my cards and altered art. I am SO excited and can't wait to decorate and set up my space! Since I'll have a space, I need a name, right? That's how "Cookie Pie Designs" was born!

It goes with the name of my blog. You see I use "the cookie" to describe all things that are awesome and good. Often times it can be an actual cookie, but it can also refer to anything that is cool and awesome. With "the cookie" referring to everything awesome, what happens if you kick it up a notch? When the "cookie" is combined with pie, well, that is the absolute epitome of wonderfulness.

Here's a a little something that will be in the shop. I got this apple from Say it with Letters. I am a huge fan of their products, such high quality! I covered the apple with Cosmo Cricket's Early Bird paper and added some ric rak.
The phrase was also in the craft pack. I think this would be perfect in a kitchen or on the dining room wall.

Here's a close-up. I HAD to add a little bling dontcha know.

I can't wait to post some pictures of the store and my display. Wish me luck in this new endeavor!

Good idea to trim the sentiment that way so that it doesn't cover too much of your yummy DP. Wishing you the best of luck with your new venture. :)
